      Hello I'm Arunas from Lithuania, I'm playing poker like 1+ month. My friend after 1.5years geting from this game like 500-1000$ every month so I deside try too :)

      Start was great i passed quiz got 50$ and started long way to be pro :s_biggrin: played all time cash game NL2-NL10 sometimes tryed NL50-NL100 (like 20-30hand) to get some good hand and leave :D (ya that was "smart") and after 1 month of grinding i was near 300$ then started black Friday action in America and dunno why but started black days for me :D I played NL10 and every day like 5-6 days I lost like 2-3buy'ins (+-150$) I reached gold so go a lot of information started study, reading + watching coach wideos, again got like 250+ $ and one friday after party I come back home and deside play few match sit and go head's up, first it was 1-2$ then 5-10$ and finnaly 50-100$ (yach brains full of wodka)
      so left like 50$ and biggest problem that when I play cash game I doing well always after 500-600 hands I have 1-2buy in + and then starting gambling and in next 20-30hands loosing like 3-4buy ins.

      so I deside to make my own blog and everyday posting my day results maybe it's and all this forum comunity will help me play smart without stupid things
      atm I have:
      14$
      50$ ticket to sunday tournament where 25% of players will get 200$ tickets to Sunday 750k guarantee.
      I know that 14$ only play for NL2 but I always loosing in NL2 so I will start from NL5 and if I loose like 1buy in I will go to NL2, if no I will play NL5 till I get true bankroll managemant rules to next NL levels.

      my Goals:
      :heart: Grow my Bankrool
      :heart: reach everyday atleast 50 Iron man chalenge points to keep Silver status (I play in Full Tilt)
      :heart: keep reading and watching video for improve game.

      So in evening I will post first day cash game grafics.

      p.s. Sorry for my bad English :D

      I was STT player, but in stars was too hard make profit in STT, too much bad beats, so 180 it's ok you dont tilt when lose bad beat because you know that 10-15% ITM enough to go up.
      and it's working for me
